Unwanted fat can appear almost anywhere on ycoolsculptingour body, and is more likely to stay as you age. The desire to lose stubborn fat around the midsection, jiggly upper arms, or weight along your thighs may increase with failed results from the gym or exhaustingly strict diet regimens. While there are weight loss procedures, such as liposuction, available for removing fat and refining the body contour, they often require downtime for recovery. Nonsurgical and minimally invasive alternatives to liposuction have gained popularity in recent years thanks to advancements in medicine that have led to a viable option for those who seeking modest reductions in fat.

What is CoolSculpting?

One of the most popular contouring treatments is the FDA-approved non-surgical CoolSculpting treatment, formerly known as Zeltiq, which is ideal for those who want to reduce small, localized areas of fat on the abdomen, hips, or thighs. The fat removal CoolSculpting treatment utilizes a non-invasive technique for destroying unwanted, diet- and exercise-resistant fat through a cryolipolysis device to cool unwanted fat cells to the point of death without affecting surround tissue.

How CoolSculpting Works?

Freezing fat cells through prolonged, controlled cooling allows the body to naturally metabolize frozen fat and flush them from the body over the next several weeks post-procedure. Once the cooled fat cells undergo apoptosis, or controlled cell death, the eliminated of fat cells gradually reduces the thickness of fat beneath the skin tissue. Final results are seen after three months. Dr. Rokhsar offers this procedure to all of his weight loss patients in Manhattan and NYC.

Science Behind the Results

Researchers at the Wellman Laser Laboratories at Harvard Medical School first discovered fat cells were more vulnerable to cold temperature than the surrounding tissue during observations in a laboratory. Upon further investigation, they found the lipids in fat cells crystallize at warmer temperatures, which ultimately destroys the tissue but spares the skin, muscle, and nerve cells. They published their findings in 2008, which revealed their ability to select and destroy fat cells without damaging the surrounding tissue.
